[SOLVED] Qt SDK installation broken for both Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04



  • I have downloaded the complete Qt SDK 5.x for both Windows 7 and Linux (Ubuntu 12.04) and run the native installers. In both installations, the option to create a C++ project is missing in Qt Creator.

    The Linux installation also complains about unmet dependencies for these plugins:

    CMakeProjectManager
    Qnx
    RemoteLinux
    Valgrind

    Both installations correctly auto-detect existing C++ compilers (MS Visual C++ on Windows and GCC on Linux) and both installations seem to detect the correct qmake binary.

    In Linux, there is a warning icon beside the qmake entry listed under "Qt Versions" entry and the problem seems to be: "No qmlviewer installed."

    In Windows, there is a warning icon beside the entry listed under Kits but there does not appear to be any explanation.

    Any advice is appreciated. I am not concerned about installing over top of anything that is already on either system if there is a way to install the SDK without any futzing around.

    Hi @ontheqt, and welcome to the Qt Dev Net!

    1. Can you post the exact links to which installers you downloaded?
    2. In Windows, what do you see when you click "File" -> "New File or Project..."?
    3. In Linux, what do you see when you click "File" -> "New File or Project..."?


  • Thanks for replying. Here is the link:

    Qt SDK Download

    In Windows and Linux, the only available projects are:

    • Application

    • Library

    • Other Project

    • Non-Qt Project

    • Import Project

    If someone can tell me how to upload an image from my computer to this thread I will post the screenshots from both OSes. The instructions I found for using Markdown are contradictory and ineffectual.

    What do you see when you click "Application" or "Non-Qt Project"?

    Host your image externally (e.g. Imgur, PhotoBucket, etc.) and link to it with the following syntax:

    Sorry, I'm not able to see anything on that page because your profile is private. Please post a link to the picture itself, not to your profile.



  • Sorry. I believe I have created a public album with both shots:

    Ok, in your original post you said "the option to create a C++ project is missing in Qt Creator", but in your screenshot I see you have the options "Plain C++ Project", "Qt Widgets Application", and many others. Can you please clarify what problem you're facing?



  • The documentation that I was looking at showed "C++ Project" listed in the main "Projects" menu in the left pane and it wasn't referred to as "plain." Is this the same option but simply relocated and renamed?

    It sounds like you are looking at a very old version of documentation. Use the official and up-to-date documentation that came with your installation. For example:



  • Ah, many thanks. I guess Google is not always my friend. :-) Is there some way to accept your answer as the solution?

    There's currently no way to mark a post as the solution to a thread unfortunately, but we welcome upvotes :-)



  • Thanks again. I guess I'll have to settle for upvoting you again. :-)
